The Dual Credit program at each of the colleges of DCCCD offers qualified high school students an opportunity to earn college credit while completing high school requirements.
Some high schools have agreements that guarantee
free tuition for Dual Credit courses. Otherwise, scholarships may cover the cost of tuition for Dual Credit students attending a Dallas County public or private high school.*
Dual Credit courses are offered in a variety of subject areas including math, science, English, economics, history, government and a wide variety of technical courses.
Dual Credit courses are taught either at the college or at the high school. Courses are taught by college faculty or by qualified high school instructors who meet the same criteria as college faculty.
All students enrolled in a Dual Credit course at any of our partnering high schools should expect the same level of course rigor and student expectations that are placed on undergraduate students enrolled in the same course at a college of DCCCD.
If you are interested in a Dual Credit course, check with your high school counselor for a complete list of available courses. Dual Credit academic courses are transferable to all Texas public colleges and universities and to some private and out-of-state institutions.
Dual Credit offers motivated high school students the opportunity to earn college and high school credit simultaneously.

Typically, DCCCD locations host in-person application sessions and often register students in face-to-face meetings. However, with every DCCCD location currently operating in a fully virtual environment, we are taking steps to ensure students are still able to apply as a Dual Credit student and enroll in Dual Credit classes.

Dual Credit coordinator for more information about scholarships for students attending Dallas County public or private high schools. Note: If your school is in Texas but outside Dallas County, you will be charged the
